administration and obama campaign could realize that the former president is a huge asset for them and perhaps they better make sure that they're working with him and communicating with him. but i think the biggest tidbit everybody is talking about is obviously this switch between hillary clinton and joe biden. but also what i want to know is what's in there about governor chris christie particularly some of the things in his background back when he was working as an sec lobbyist. and a think all of those details will be out shortly and you can no doubt bet people will be looking for clues for the potential gop frontrunner for 2016. >> the book said he did not choose chris christie because he had too many political land mines. so what might be some of the problems he faces if he chooses to run in 2016. >> what's also interesting is that the christie spokesperson put out a statement actually saying that he was very forthcoming with the romney campaign, so they actually issued a response. i think that there are going to be tons of questions everyone's vetted for 2016 as you go through th

obama care, so this administration has a real problem on their hands. of course, now you have these democratic senators, particularly in these red states saying they want to extend the sign-update. this has been a real disaster. and you wonder if the administration is setting themselves up again with this november 30th date when they say everything is going to be fine with this website, hard to believe that that actually is going to be true given the fact that so many things they have said about this plan haven't really come to pass. >> do you believe there was a fundamental lack of understanding, yes, people would go on and see if you're comparing apples to apples, old plan versus if they were required to sign up for more extensive plan that they would get so-called better health care but that would come at a slight higher cost, that the administration thought that people would say, okay, i get it. i'm paying a bit more but getting more in return from this. did he underestimate that wouldn't be satisfactory? >> i think they did underestimate that that wouldn't be satisfactory. i th

the senate hearing, and obama administration officials saying they are fixing the problems. >> we are now able to process nearly 17,000 registrants per hour, or five per second, with almost no errors. we have updated the site several times since october 1, fixing bugs and improving the healthcare.gov experience. >> now, she came to capitol hill today and gave some numbers. i love numbers. i love absolutes. i love facts, unlike hannity. if republican governors would have actually governed and set up state exchanges, obviously the law would be working a heck of a lot better. the architects of obama care weren't expecting this massive pushback from republican politicians and obstruction. they might have planned differently if they knew this was coming. this is why i think we've got to be talking about round 2 on the democratic side. round 2 of health care, and let's revisit the public option. so if marco rubio wants to show up in virginia and if ken cuccinelli wants to embrace all these obstructionists, it's all crystal clear, isn't it? these people do not want those who do not have

things together, which is double down and the problems that the obama administration is having with this health care rollout. there is a moment in the book where they talk about just before the second debate the president's staff staged kind of what they called an intervention because they were so worried about his debate practice performances. and he told them about his lawyerly mind and that that's why he sometimes had unsatisfying answers. mark halperin actually this morning tied those two things together. let me play that for you. >> almost everything that he's having trouble with now, trouble with congress, trouble with public opinion, trouble with explaining himself, you can see in that scene where he's laying himself bare in a way he normally doesn't do to anybody. >> matt, for a president who has been such an incredible communicator, has communication been his downfall sometimes too? >> i think he's been a bad communicator. i think it's a myth that he has special talent to convince the american people about things, especially when it comes to obama care. >> maybe in that instance
